We had a balcony on the 8th floor of the Epic and didn't have any concerns about privacy from above. If anyone was watching, it wasn't obvious.
I was originally concerned about the view, since the lifeboats were immediately below us, but in reality it didn't block much of the view. My daughter is afraid of heights and she was actually relieved because it blocked the view of the water right next to the ship. Horizon view was great.
I would make sure my cabin was not right over Bliss and the bowling alley. My Mom had an 8th floor cabin and she was disturbed by the noise one night. We were on the opposite side of the ship and had no problems.
